Introduction to CE certification : CE certification is a safety certificate that must be owned by exporting to 46 countries in the EU. EU customs will release it only after seeing the certificate. After CE certification, foreign customers will also recognize the product, and it can be freely circulated in EU member states. ,
CE certification is a compulsory certification of the European Union, and the local market supervision and administration bureau will randomly check whether there is a CE certificate at any time. Once it is found that there is no such certificate, the export qualification of this product will be cancelled and re-export to EU countries will be prohibited. European CE certification must be tested and certified according to different products.
2. CE certification process :
1. The application is made by the enterprise;
2. Both parties sign a certification contract;
3. The enterprise provides testing samples and technical documents;
4. Carry out sample testing and technical document review;
5. Issuing a certificate of compliance:
6. The enterprise issues a declaration of conformity;
7. The enterprise attaches the CE mark on the product
3. Technical data to be prepared for CE certification :
Ordinary electronic equipment products only need to prepare samples, instructions, and circuit diagrams. For wireless products, you need to provide an additional copy of the product's PCB board diagram, product frame diagram (frame diagram confidential), and BOM table.
CE certification issuance time
Generally, it takes about 5-10 working days to issue a certificate for ordinary products , while it takes about 15 working days for wireless products, and CE&RED certification is required.
3. Update of CE certification instructions :
The new safety LVD directive in CE, on March 29, 2014, the official journal of the European Union published a new version of the low-voltage directive/EU for CE certification, which will replace the original low-voltage directive/EC for CE certification in April 2016. Executed from the 20th of the month.
The new EMC directive on electromagnetic compatibility in CE, the updated EMC directive is numbered /EU, which will take effect on April 18, 2014. The old EMC Directive/EC will be repealed on April 20, 2016.
The new EU Radio Equipment Directive /EU will be implemented on June 13
On May 22, 2014, the Official Journal of the European Union (/62) published a new version of the Radio Equipment Directive/EU to replace the original Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment Directive/EC. The new directive will be implemented from June 13, 2016. Member States must complete the legislative process by June 12, 2016.Customers and friends who have expired the original CE RTTE certificate instruction should hurry up and re-apply for the new instruction RED certificate.
General electrical and electronic products are mainly subject to the following two directives :
LVD Directive: Short for Low Voltage Electrical Directive, all electrical products sold in the European Community must comply with this directive.
EMC Directive: Abbreviation for Electromagnetic Compatibility. EMC includes two categories: EMI (interference) and EMS (anti-interference).
Wireless products require additional compliance with the RED Directive. Mechanical products need to meet the MD requirements, medical products need to pass the certification of the MDD directive, pressure equipment needs to meet the requirements of the PED directive, and personal protective equipment needs to meet the requirements of the PPE directive.
